PKU update

This post is: 
It's been a while since the last PKU update. During this update, we talked about how Owen's PHE levels had gone out of the targeted range which triggered an adjustment to Owen's diet.

Just to let everyone know, we've received two subsequent results back from tests, and his PHE levels are right back down where they need to be. Owen seems to react wonderfully to the adjustments in his PKU management plan.

Go Owen!

Oh... and, Owen tipped the scales today at an unofficial 11 pounds. Just about 2 months old too. So, if we run the math out, on his 30th birthday, now he's bound to weigh somewhere around 54o pounds. That's down from the 720 pound estimate we had previously given... so we're on the right track.


  1. That's great news! I've already sent him a "Happy New Year" gift - you should be getting it any day!

  3. Mimi just has to say "go mom and dad" for doing such an awesome job of keeping Owen on track!
